Shoes are one of the tools that help dancers make astonishing, athletic and beautiful art. Creating a new ballet like Hansel & Gretel is an exciting challenge and you can help Scottish Ballet produce this new work by helping us buy new shoes.
Just as people of all ages from across Scotland have been telling us their stories about what the tale of Hansel & Gretel means to them, you too can play your part in bringing this ballet to the stage.
With your support, Scottish Ballet will purchase the 2800 pairs of shoes that will bring Hansel & Gretel to life and give Scottish Ballet's dancers the most vital tool of their costume. Please will you help create the magic of a new ballet by making a donation today?
£36 will pay for one pair of pointe shoes
£49 will pay for one pair of men’s specialist character shoes
£255 will pay for 17 pairs of children’s shoes
£500 will pay for flat ballet shoes for a male dancer for 10 weeks
£750 will pay for shoes for a principal dancer for one season
£1,000 will pay for the shoes for one cast of Hansel & Gretel
